Sunny Stories, then Bunty while my sister had Judy. I still remember some of the stories - Wee Slavey, about a Victorian scullery maid, and another about an orphaned girl forced to play table tennis by her wicked grandmother (sounds bizarre when it's written like that!).

Later on Jackie, then Cosmo.

I had Girl, my sister Bunty and brother Eagle (remember Dan Dare!). I also remember reading School Friend.

I had sunny stories as well, I think it was an Enid Blyton magazine, then knowledge (my mum was a teacher). When I was a bit older I had princess and swapped with my friends for Bunty, Judy and School friend. Any one remember SUE Day and the happy Days.

Oh, Anne, we had Knowledge too. It was very interesting.

You could buy binders for it and it built into an encyclopedia. I learnt a lot from it.

I found three or four binders full of Knowledge magazines in my Mum's loft when she died in 2004.

I had 'Knowledge' binders too, I think I was given them by a cousin back in the '60s, I wish I had kept them.

I had Bunty and then, when the TV related comics started, 'Lady Penelope' from issue one.

'Lady Penelope' is probably worth a small fortune to collectors, so wish I had kept them! In fact my sister and I insisted we had our own copies so small fortune x 2

I moved onto 'Jackie' in 1969......The problem page was a great talking point in the first year of my all girls school

Ah yes, the problems page.

"I am 15 3/4 and I haven't told my parents I am six months pregnant"

I have often wondered what on earth happened to those poor girls and their children.

Bunty and Princess Tina. There was also June & Schoolfriend but I don't recall reading it. My brother and I used to collect our magazines on a Friday from the newsagent near our school. They were put by for us, which I thought was very posh! I read his mags too - Dandy and Beano. I liked the story strip about Marina from Thunderbirds but can't remember which mag it was in.

I remember there was a serial about a girl with a lovely voice who was freckly and did the singing behind a curtain while a more glamorous looking girl mimed. Not very pc!

Our cousins passed on their Treasure and Look & Learn. One of them had a comic strip story about Roman emperors which I found useful when I read "I, Claudius" in my teens.



Jackie was a stepping stone between girls' mags and the more sophisticated Honey, Petticoat and 19.

One of my local charity shops has a big pile of issues of Tammy from 1979 in the window for 99p each. A bit after my time, though.
